New Dune photo reveals new Look at Zendaya’s Chani
Following yesterday’s release of the first images from Denis Villenueve’s highly-anticipated remake of Dune, The Greatest Showman star Zendaya took to Instagram to share a brand new photo, providing us a with another look at her character Chani in full costume. In the books, Chani is the love interest to Timothée Chalamet’s Paul Atreides, who he first met through his dreams. Check out the full photo below!
The star-studded cast includes Timothée Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible — Fallout) and Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) in leading roles. The film will also feature Zendaya (Spider-Man: Far From Home) Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy), Javier Bardem (No Country For Old Men), Stellan Skarsgard (Thor: The Dark World), Charlotte Rampling (The Night Porter) and Josh Brolin (Avengers: Endgame).
Villeneuve is best known for directing Blade Runner 2049 as well as Sicario. Though Dune will likely resemble the former film more than the latter, both display the sort of experience directing arid, desolate locales that a fan would want in their Dune director, considering a sizable chunk of the story takes place on a desert planet.
Dune is currently set to be released in theaters on December 18, 2020.
